Building Quality & Functionable Websites
A Web Designer and Web Developer, also known as Web Builders. The difference of the two is narrowed down to the tools they use to complete a task, and of course the knowledge it takes to do each task. You think an architect that designs your house will know how to build your house? Even though a Web Designer and a Web Developer usaully can do both tasks, it takes many years to be able to do them both effectivly. A designer will use programs like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator to create their designs to where a developer may use programs such as Adobe Brackets, Adobe Dreamweaver to write the code to bring the design to life.
How do we develop websites?

Most CMSs include Web-based publishing, format management, history editing and version control, indexing, search, and retrieval. By their nature, content management systems support the separation of content and presentation.
